DanceSport Dupont Circle: what do users think?


Jason Janke: We found Terry with only one month until our wedding day, and over just a few classes he worked with us to choreograph an elegant, yet achievable first dance for us (we came in with no prior experience). We even changed songs after our first lesson, and he was able to quickly change the style of dance to better match the different pace of song. We had fun with the resulting dance, which impressed our guests and brought out some tears. The space could occasionally get crowded with other classes going on, but it was never an issue. We were happy with everything, and enjoyed our time learning/practicing.

Adam Abramson: Terry is very knowledgeable and has good tips. It’s a fun class that I’ll definitely use at my wedding. My only gripe is that if there’s other classes going on, he’s really soft spoken so it’s hard to hear. Would recommend though! Especially if you want a choreographed dance.

Sharon Williams: Love Earl! He is a great instructor! Also love the salsa club he took us to to apply what we have learned. Looking forward to the next class!

Sam Young: Terry was great however it was very difficult to hear with two other classes happening simultaneously in the same room with their own music.

Sarah Pearce: Terry choreographed our first dance for our wedding this past November and our guests loved it! It was one of the highlights of our reception. We never anticipated that our guests would be cheering for us! Neither one of us have taken lessons in the past, so we were anxious going into our first lesson. But Terry made us feel very comfortable and was very patient with us. He's very creative and provided a few options/moves for us to use based on what we preferred. We loved going home to practice - it was such a fun experience during the high-stress time of planning the rest of the wedding. I highly recommend!

Alessandro Ghidini: I have attended DanceSport Dupont Circle for the past 2 years. The dance area is spacious and divided by mirror screens to allow concurrent classes. I have taken ballroom lessons with Terry Chasteen with a focus on International style. Terry is the most patient and competent instructor one can desire. His own experience as competitor and judge at national and international competitions makes him perfectly suited to train and prepare a couple for the world of competitions. I was thus able to compete at a few National and one international competitions. It was a fantastic experience and Terry was there until the end to support me and my partner in our endeavor. I have also observed Terry interacting with couples who want to prepare for wedding events, and he is excellent at putting together a choreography that suits the music chosen by the bride (either for the dance with the groom or with the bride's father), as well as their dancing skills. You will not regret your decision to start dancing at DanceSport Dupont Circle!

Elsa Peraldi: Luca was our teacher for our wedding dance. He was great!!! Not only did he worked with us to have a great choreography, but he was also super patient with us and help us navigate the process at times when we would be stressed. He is really flexible and works with you to find a time that works for you. Couldn't recommend more!

Louis L.: OMG, Terry is adorable. Clearly, he eats, sleeps and breathes everything related to dancing. I have known him to dance with students late into the evening--perhaps having a power snack in between--but never skipping a beat! He is patient and accommodating. My dance partner and I won 3 silver medals after Terry choreographed four fantastic Latin dance routines in preparation for our dance competition in 2018. I am forever grateful to Terry for his training.

Jonathan Dickinson: We arrived 10 minutes early, and then waited 15 minutes after our appointment time. The instructor ignored us for the couple ahead of us. We planned our day and evening around this lesson.

John Farr: Great job of teaching the first dance wedding basics

The Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio: what do users think?


Kat Cap: Was visiting DC for the weekend & felt like I wanted to do something else instead of museums and found Silvia's event on Eventbrite for their first ever Saturday morning Yoga & Salsa Social Dancing event! One can either choose to do just the yoga, or social OR best of both worlds! I had a flowy strengthening fun yoga class with Anya & enjoyed DJ Aldo's amazing music & dancing! I've started learning a bit of salsa on 2 and despite them being a salsa on 1 studio, they welcomed me so kindly! We all enjoyed dancing with each other, had met such fantabulous people with great vibes! I recommend this studio so0o much! I can only imagine how awesome their regular classes are!
Response: Omg, Kat, thank you SO much for the super kind words! This was the first time we tried this format and we’ll only be getting better! So glad you stopped by and we hope to see you again soon. We also offer classes on 2. Cheers, Silvia

Summer Brouwer: There’s a reason why they have 5 stars! I never had the luxury of attending dance classes. I just moved here cross country and wanted to try a new experience. I was very hesitant, and very nervous, but I bought the new student pass for $100. The pass allows you to attend unlimited group classes for the month. It’s about a week into the session and I am in love with dance! They have many different instructors and many different styles of dance. I felt at ease learning with other students of my skill level and the energy of my instructors helped me feel so comfortable as well. If you’re on the fence about whether you want to try it or not, GET OVER IT! I love it here and you will too!
Response: Wow, Summer! I have tears in my eyes after reading your review! It makes it all worth the hard work! Thank you so much! We are here to show people that dance heals and helps physically and emotionally. We are so happy you love dance now! Silvia

Reema Bhardwaj: Salsa with Silvia is THE PLACE TO BE. Whether you’re looking to improve your dancing, rent their beautiful studio for your private event, or bring your kids for an experience. You will leave feeling satisfied and happy that you took the step to come in. There is a reason this studio is the #1 Latin Dance studio in the DMV. You can feel the love that was put into the studio from starting out in just a basement to two studios! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The teachers are patient, understanding, and energetic. The adult dance classes are always so much fun and filled with great material you can take with you. They even allow videos to be taken so you can look back to review. And the owner Silvia, she is a boss lady. Very friendly, helpful, and fun. If you’re looking to have a great time with your friends, learn, teach your children dance, or have a private event, come here & don’t waste your time calling other studios!
Response: Much 💗 for you! Thank you so much for your support!

Margaret Houck: I have been taking classes at Salsa with Silvia for about 6 months now and I'm nothing but grateful for everything this studio has brought me! When I started I was recently out of college, new to DC, had zero dance background, and was nervous to be putting myself out there. But there was no need to be nervous because everyone at the studio provided such a welcoming, comforting, safe environment for me to learn and explore my new love for dancing. I've taken classes with multiple different instructors at SWS and have truly enjoyed them all! I tend to go to Joffre's classes multiple times per week and absolutely love them. He and his assistant, Keelin, provide such a fun, safe environment for everyone to learn and challenge themselves. I always feel welcomed in their space and am so thankful for all of the great experiences that they and everyone at SWS have given me. Can't wait to keep learning new moves, making new friends, and connecting with the salsa community through SWS :)
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! It means a lot!

Zey: Salsa with Silvia is more than a dance studio. Lots of magic happens there. You’ve got all the basics- amazing instructors, good variety of classes in style and level, a professional business, and a safe and reliable environment. In addition, you learn how dancing is about much more than just moving your body. By joining the studio you enter a community, so you meet amazing people and make new friends. The owner Silvia is always engaged and she is always willing to help. I have been going to the studio for about 2 years now, and the instructor I have taken the most number of classes with is Joffre. I always had a thing for salsa, but he is the one who really made me love it. Joffre is technically very competent, and he is also a great teacher (which is not always a given). He is also a warm and genuine person, who is very open to feedback. And as a bonus, he has the best taste in music, I learned the best songs/ artists I know from him. In short, if you are interested in entering the world of latin dancing, SWS is the place for you!
Response: Wow! ❤️ Thank you! We love our students so much! So happy that you are part of our community! People like you are the reason for us to fight and survive last year! Thank you!

Marcia de Jesus: I joined Salsa with Silvia in its Georgia Avenue location in January of 2018. During the first 5-6 months of 2018, I was at the studio pretty much every weeknight and all day on Saturday. The studio offers an unlimited-class plan, and you bet I signed up for that and took full advantage of it. My plan of taking as many classes as possible in a short amount of time to improve my dancing skills fast was one of the reasons why I was at the studio all the time when I first joined. The other reason was the people I found there – and they are the reason I keep going to this day. Incredible human beings have worked at SWS over the years, who have helped me feel comfortable as I engaged in a new and at times challenging activity. Among the front-office people, I must give a shout out to Gary. For a long time, he was the face of SWS for me, the person I reached out to if I needed anything. I miss you at the Georgia Avenue location! Among the instructors, I’m sorry for picking favorites (all instructors are great in their own way), but Joffre has always been my guy. Not only is Joffre a very good dancer, but he is also an excellent instructor. He knows how to break down and explain the moves (including teaching how to respect personal space and make sure nobody gets hurt while executing moves); he meets the students where they are (skill-wise) so nobody feels discouraged nor bored; and he tries to make sure everyone is having fun as they work on their dance skills. I felt challenged in Joffre’s classes, but also reassured whenever things got difficult and potentially frustrating. He has certainly helped me become a better dancer and I am grateful for that! Finally, SWS is the place where I found a safe, fun, open community and made very good friends. SWS has become a part of my life, a place I associate with happy things!
Response: Thank you so much Marcia! Your kind words are greatly appreciated.

Nikki Mammano: Finally after some time, I feel ready to write this review. I took Silvia's salsa teacher training course back in 2019 with an excitement to take my dancing to the next level. I have been dancing salsa since 2014 and I wasn't sure if I wanted to actually take the next leap and teach yet, but I was curious to start building a teacher foundation. After the experience however, I realized it was a mistake. And now, I cannot recommend this studio. The course itself I think was the first time Silvia and David were hosting it, it was extremely disorganized and not thought out. Some of the material was okay, but they threw so much at us in a short amount of time (7 weeks) and expected us to be experts by the end without any support. Silvia is also one of the coldest and most unsupportive people I have ever met. For the last class, she told us we were having a "test." I remember the week before I asked her who we would be teaching and how I should prepare, she did not give me very much information. When I walked in the week, I expected we would be teaching the other trainees like we were the 6 weeks prior. Nope. She threw actual student volunteers at us without informing us or letting us prepare. For me, it was very nerve-racking. She placed me to go last and by the time it was my turn, there were more students in my class than the trainees before me, which made the experience even worse. During our feedback session at the end, with both her and David, Silvia looked me cold in the face and told me I was too insecure to be a teacher. Mind you, I paid a lot of $$$ to take this "teacher training," just to be torn down as a dancer. I suggest Silvia does NOT host a teacher training again. Also, there is a lot of great dancing in DC. While you can learn some great foundations here and some of the teachers are wonderful, I do suggest looking elsewhere to become an advanced dancer.
Response: Thank you for the honest, review Nikki. I apologize if we've hurt you in any way. Teaching indeed is nerve wracking any way you look at it so it takes a certain personality to be able to be a good teacher. Teachers are always presented with difficult situations and they have to know how to handle them whether they are ready or not. Part of the training was a personality test to see if people can handle situations like that. The goal of the training was to provide the knowledge as to where the information was, the rest was on the trainees to study and prepare. As with all other trainings. You are completely entitled to your opinion of course and again, I apologize. Most of the trainees ended up teaching classes at the studio and that's the only negative review we've received. My advise would be if you really want to be a teacher, you should keep trying and working at it because it takes really hard work and it's mostly on you, not so much on the training, anywhere you get it. I, for example have never had a formal training but I've worked incredibly hard on studying, preparing and practicing so I can be ready to teach. Cold is something I haven't been called just yet but if that's what you think of me, I cannot argue. Hundreds of our students may disagree with you and I am always open to meet and talk to any of them, which is how I built the largest Latin dance studio in the DMV. Again, best of luck Nikki and I am sorry it didn't work out. Regards, Silvia

Darniesha Beach: Took my 2 year old to the babies dance class and the teacher was great. Very good with little ones and my daughter took to her immediately. The class was empty just 2 little ones including mine... but she still managed to fill the time and make it fun. Everything was very clean and location is nice if you want to make a day of it. My only complaint is the time; my daughter has to skip a nap to attend. She was super cranky so I don’t think we’ll be back until a different time slot is available or she no longer needs her afternoon nap. A class between 9&12 or at 5 would be cool.
Response: Thank you 💗 what time would work for you?

Caoilfhionn Roche: I am a former student of Mario, Joffre, and Cat's classes, and Joffre's current dance partner and assistant of 2 years now. The Salsa with Silvia studio has been my home for 2 years, as it has been home to many others. Particularly considering the global pandemic that we have collectively gone through, I think that one of the greatest lessons the last year has taught us is that we are social beings, and we need community, which is what the studio has brought to everyone that has walked through the doors. I have spent majority of my weeks over the last 2 years at this studio - truly nonstop - and I have never felt anything other than respect, care, and professionalism from Silvia as a studio owner and Joffre as an instructor and partner. His classes and teams are a joyful, fun, safe space, where I, among others have learned and laughed together. I have continuously heard from people how Joffre's classes and practices are the highlights of their days (and mine as well). Through a global pandemic and beyond it, Joffre has been a constant for his classes and teams, always respectful and responsible, cultivating a safe space for people to come, from wherever someone's day is bringing them, and be their authentic selves. This has created nothing but a community filled with honest, kind, caring people, that I have encountered. This has been my continuous experience with SWS over the last 2 years. The bottom line is: Silvia, Joffre, and the entire SWS community is a wonderful place to be, and I truly encourage you to come and see and feel it for yourself. - Keelin
Response: Thank you, Keelin!

Mia H: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueTook a private salsa lesson for 2 and it was AMAZING! Joffre was so kind and knowledgeable that he made learning to dance easy! Perfect for if you're looking to try something new or for a date night!
Response: Thank you so much, Mia! We are so glad you loved the lesson.

Crown Dance Studio: what do users think?


Austin Chang: Abraham and Regina are excellent teachers. They are very friendly and accommodating to new dancers. The group lessons and social dancing offered at this studio are a lot of fun and are a great value. I would recommend attending them, even if you take classes and/or dance elsewhere.
Response: Hello Austin! Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback of our classes here at Crown Dance Studio. We love having you and everyone in our Bachata and Salsa Classes on Monday night here at Crown Dance Studio. You're amazing and we look forward to watching and helping you with all your dancing needs. Cheers to more fun and exciting times to come 😁🕺🏾 Sincerely, Abraham Sannoh 🙏🏾

Elena Filimonova: This is not ONE of the best studios, this IS the best! Abraham is the instructor from God, has a great team! I never thought I would take up dancing.... Everything is well structured, well organised and punctual. Everyone is SUPER friendly! For a beginner it is very important not to step away because the body does not have that movement memory yet...CROWN DANCE studio definitely will be best for the beginners! (BUT not only!) They teach you to ENJOY dancing, not just steps. The decision to join the CROWN DANCE STUDIO was one of my best! 101 percent recommend it to all! All the world!
Response: Hello Elena, Thank you so much for your amazing and heartfelt feedback. Having you in our Bachata & Salsa classes on Mondays is a joy. We're truly grateful to you for your support, commitment, and beautiful energy. I have truly enjoy teaching you and I look forward to seeing the maturation of your dancing. With great appreciation and love. Abraham Sannoh :)

Kylie Sparks: This is a really fun studio. I took two private bachata lessons with Regina and she's great! In only two sessions I learned how to be a much better follower, how to soften my arms, do turns, do the sweetheart, and the windmill. Everyone in the studio is friendly and from observing other lessons, all of the teachers seem fabulous. There's a Monday night beginner group class I'm looking forward to trying. The studio is easy to get to with plenty of parking.
Response: Hello Kylie, Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback 😊 we appreciate it. Regina is amazing and one of our best. She's great at what she does and we're truly blessed to have here 💖 we're glad you you enjoyed your sessions and we look forward to seeing you in our Bachata and Salsa group classes 🙏🏾 Sincerely, Abraham 🤗❤

Mark Komi: After my (now) wife and I decided on our wedding song, we quickly realized that we had no clue how to actually dance to it... After looking around at several dance studios in the Fairfax area, Crown looked like it had potential and we decided to go for the complimentary first lesson. We were very happy that we did and afterwards we didn't hesitate to sign up for one of their wedding dance lesson packages. We got to work with Abraham for our dance and he was fantastic! Not only is he an amazing dancer, but he is also a great teacher. He listened to our song and choreographed our dance - custom tailored to our music. After 12 lessons (with an unexpected year break in the middle due to Covid) we went from being novice dancers with zero experience to being very confident and excited going into our first dance. Overall the whole experience was a lot of fun. We were super happy with our finished product and we absolutely recommend Crown Dance Studio if you want your first dance to be something special that you will always remember.
Response: Mark, Thank you so much for your beautiful feedback on Crown Dance Studio. We had a great time working with you on your wedding first dance and we truly appreciate you making us part of your amazing life journey ❤ You're beautiful people who we had the privilege of choreographing for. Thank you again for choosing Crown Dance Studio for your first dance routine. We wish you peace, joy, and prosperity in your new chapter together. ✨ Sincerely, Abraham 🤗

It was also great to see you and yiur fiance work on your dance today. You guys looked amazing 👏🏾 congratulations on your wedding and thank you for making us part of your special day 😊

Richard Ortegon: Crown dance studio hosts great lessons for beginners and intermediate dancers. My wife has been attending for about a year and when I attended recently I felt that the transition from small understandable moves to a full routine by the end of the class felt very rewarding. I have attended the salsa and bachata classes and recommend other people curious about starting to dance to come and try it out.
Response: Richard, It was so lovely to have you in our Intermediate Bachata and Salsa Classes here at Crown Dance Studio on Wednesday. It's been wonderful having your wife in our Classes and as much as we have heard about you, it was wonderful to finally have you in the class with us! 👊😁 thank you again for recommending Crown Dance Studio and thank you for attending. We look forward to seeing you in our Intermediate Bachata and Salsa Classes again when you visit next time. Thank you 🙌 ~Abraham Sannoh

Forever Dancing Ballroom: what do users think?


Christine Heppner: I just recently had my renewal of vows and my dad and I wanted to do something special. A neighbor had worked with Forever Dancing for her mother/daughter dance and highly recommended the team. We did five evening lessons which worked so well with our schedules, and we learned different choreography to match the multiple songs I mixed together. I played the track for Fabio during our first rehearsal and he ran with it! We had a great time and everybody could not stop talking about the father/daughter dance! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!!!
Response: We are So Happy to Hear that Everything Went well and it was a joy working with you both. Thank you fir the review.

Kimberlyn Eaton: We began taking group lessons to do something fun together and didn't have any expectations. I have a ballet background and my fiancé had never danced, but our instructor Fabio is amazingly talented at presenting material for all levels of dancers in a single classroom. Since we had so much fun, we decided to do private lessons and choreography for our wedding. Fabio crafted a dance that was comfortably challenging for us, even incorporating steps we learned in group class. We haven't had our wedding yet, but we're sure that even if we misstep or stumble it will all have been worth it because we had so much fun during lessons working with each other and Fabio. Additionally, the studio is a beautiful space with great COVID precautions, a friendly staff, and personal reminders for class. Jennifer and Fabio have a built a business the whole community should give a try!
Response: Thank you Kim! It was a pleasure working with you both. We cannot wait to see your pictures and videos.

Johnny Shryock: My wife Brittany and I have had a fantastic and transformative experience dancing at Forever Dancing Ballroom! We found them at one of their open house events and immediately booked a package of lessons with Fabio for our wedding. Our dance lessons were always a fun break from wedding planning, and we left every dance lesson feeling better than we did when we walked in. It was exciting to learn new moves and choreography at every lesson. At first, we thought the techniques were difficult, but with practice and good coaching, we were able to learn the steps and perform a romantic and fun first dance at our wedding. It was thrilling to do our dance in front of such a supportive and enthusiastic crowd - we absolutely loved the magic moment of our first dance! My wife and I had a casual interest in dancing before we worked on the first dance with Fabio, but since then, we've become hooked and now we take group classes and have continued with private lessons as well. Jennifer Bonini manages the studio classes, billing, private lessons, events, and more. She is friendly, funny, and supportive, and very excellent at keeping everything organized. A talented dancer herself, Jennifer has also shared some excellent dance coaching with us from time to time. Other coaches at the studio are similarly personable and welcoming to all. The entire vibe at Forever Dancing is simply perfect for those looking for an approachable dance studio that will keep you smiling, moving, and have a blast dancing. I highly encourage you to visit Forever Dancing Ballroom as a studio: for wedding first dance lessons, group classes, cool workshops, and a fulfilling way to spend your time!
Response: Thank you Johnny! You and Brittany are simply a pleasure to teach and have the ability to take any challenge to the next level. I am looking forward to see your future in dancing. I am excited about your new dance number at our dance showcase. I know you will do another FUNtastic performance.

Gabriel Glasser: Fabio took us from zero classical dancing experience to nailing our first dance. He gave us clear and honest direction, and constant motivation. I recommend Fabio to any couple!
Response: Thank you Gabriel! It was a pleasure working with you.

Niki Ceo: My son Peter and I had two wonderful dancing lessons with Fabio. Peter's wedding is coming up and I wanted to have some instruction for our dance together. He (Peter) didn't think we needed more than one, but boy he changed his mind after the first one. It was such fun! It was a wonderful experience for the two of us. And Fabio was a Fabulous instructor!. Very patient and encouraging and full of so many great ideas to make our mother/son dance special. Thank you again Fabio. I enjoyed our lessons so much.!!!
Response: Thank you Niki! It was a pleasure working with you. Enjoy your son wedding!

Julie: I am a professional dancer--contemporary dance, improvisation, history, and dance-making. I have taught dance in universities and community schools for many years. I studied ballroom dancing many years ago and had a longing to return to ballroom dancing and learn more. I also wanted to support a local business in the dance community and I have found Forever Dancing Ballroom to be a treasure. Fabio is an amazing and gifted teacher. He is excellent in communicating both the technique and the spirit of each of the dances with passion and depth. Jennifer is attentive and thorough. She has provided great support answering questions and helping me prepare for competition. Fabio and Jennifer are a superior team of educators and are just plain nice people. Dancing is always fun when you get to do it with kind, fun, and awesome people!
Response: Thank you for your review, it is always great to have fun, dedicated students with love for the dance,

Francine Tango: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueAwesome place to learn during this pandemic. They have great instruction and if you do not have a partner , you can learn 6 feet apart from your partner. Everybody wears masks, temperature is taken, shoes changed and lot's of FUN. I feel safe and aquiring a new skill during this pandemic. Thank you Forever Dancing!
Response: We are glad to hear that you felt safe and have fun while learning how to dance.Thank you!

Joseph Smith: Anu was a wonderful instructor!! We took private lessons at Forever Dancing to learn to dance for our wedding. We are new to the world of ballroom dance and Anu took the time to make the experience fun and easy to learn. She taught us how to ballroom dance and put together a choreographed dance routine to wow our friends and family. Would definitely recommend Forever Dancing for any dancing needs!
Response: Thank you for your review, we are so happy that you both had a great experience learning something new and exciting as ballroom dancing with one of our talented instructors at Forever Dancing. Congratulations! And looking forward to seeing some pics of your special day.

Andrew White: I was totally new to salsa dancing and signed up for an 8 week beginner course with Fabio and Jennifer. They did a great job of making the class efficient, educational, and fun. They also gave me at least one piece of individual feedback every single session. I practiced at home 1x/week and I also took a 2nd 8 week class with them before moving out of the area. I would highly recommend dance classes with this business.
Response: Thank You Andrew! You are doing great with your Salsa

Cah Abdalla: We booked 10 classes for our first dance and it was amazing! Our wedding became extremely special with our Brazilian dance. Fabio was awesome and very professional! We strongly recommend it!
Response: Thanks Camila! Congratulations on your great performance. It was great working with you.

Ferocity Dance Company: what do users think?


Cindy Cruz: I found ferocity through my good friend Saul who when I shared with him that I really wanted to be on a dance team, he immediately with NO hesitation directed me to Kat. From that point on, it’s all history. Ferocity has become my home, my family, and more importantly my safe place. Idk what I would be doing if it wasn’t for ferocity. It’s a special place for me, and will always be. It’s really true when Kat says fierce is for everyone. Even though I am not your ideal dancer on the scene, she makes me feel like I belong every single time I step in the studio, and it’s truly a great feeling ♥️

S “Kye” Soni: If you want safety, respect, and utmost quality of service then choose ferocity. There is no doubt Kat (ferocity owner) is one the most talented dance directors in DMV area. She also has the most skilled dance coaches who work along side her. Like Carolina, Juan, Eli, and many others. I have been now part of ferocity for 6 years now. I had the pleasure to dance with many amazing dancers and learn most amazing dance moves. I have experienced many dance classes or company’s and by far ferocity studio is the only one that stay true to their customers and their safety during COVID. Don’t believe go check out one of ferocity weekend intensives, I am sure will be back for more.
Response: Thank you so much for the lovely words Kye, it’s been a pleasure having you all these years!

FranklinLiranzo: Fantastic school to learn all of the latin dance genres!! Professional and trained staff with numerous championship titles under their belts!!! Highly recommend them!!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Franklin!

jeannice schillary: Currently the studio is doing VIRTUAL CLASSES to keep it running! ♥️♥️ This studio is more than a place to dance! It feels like a family with how coach/ instructor Kat Arias keeps it running! Kat is very sweet, funny, and fierce 😍 She delivers her critiques in the most perfect way where you’re left only wanting to improve more! Same for the rest of the instructors!!! Ximena - stunning styling patterns Carolina- phenomenal technique Juan- the drill Sargent you could only dream of And much more for all!!! Hope you try it out and find a new place to call home like I did ☺️♥️ #fierceisforeveryone

Julian Gapud: Ever since I met Kat, the director and owner of Ferocity, and being apart of her studio, I have had nothing but a pleasant and professional experience. This is a great place to build proper technique and a solid bachata foundation. Not only will you become a better dancer but also a better member of the dance community! Highly recommend!

Stephenson Eli: So ferocity has been my home for over a year now and every time I step into this studio I cant help but feel alive and refreshed from a long day. It means the world to me to dance and I love sharing the experience with everyone I've had the pleasure of meeting. Not only is this a home to me but a place I can safely enjoy my time of active relaxation!! I've come a long way and learn so many new things with every teacher. Especially Kat Arias I hope you take a chance and check it out when you can!

Samantha Ondrusek: The instructor/owner is truly a wonderful woman! Her experience and professionalism shine through! It is an all inclusive dance company where literally EVERYONE is welcome! I've been training under her for a while now and I encourage anyone interested to give it a go! Your experience will leave you happy and full of confidence! Her professional and competitive teams are warm and welcoming to new people and beginners! Check out her teams and their performances!

Alessandra Garcia: Amazing studio in the Northern Virginia area! Check it out for yourself. You will find more than a dance studio though, you will find a family. I enjoy the amazing techniques I have learned over the last year. This was my first attempt getting more serious about dancing and I believe I came to the right spot. I learned about Ferocity through a recommendation, in which I am very grateful for. That is why the is review is important, so I can let the rest of the world know what a gem this studio is for all of us living in the DMV area. I have not looked back ever since. I started taking lessons with Kat, as part of the Ladies Team and I am happy because I have seen much improvement. I was able to experience why this is one of the most respectable dance studios in the area. I feel love, commitment, professionalism, confidence and courage after every practice. Thank you Kat and thank you Ferocity! So grateful for you and ll the work done here.

Josette Souza: Words can't even describe how much Ferocity has helped me grow, not only as a dancer and performer, but as a person. Kat cares deeply about you as a holistic person, and when you walk into the studio (or the Zoom call), you know you're going into a place you can be yourself, where you'll be pushed, and where you'll evolve. If you're looking for more than just lessons, if you want connection, fun, joy, and family, this is the place to be.

Dwight Williams: Ok, let's see! I’ve been a member of Ferocity for two years and during that time I’ve learned much more about bachata music, social dancing and performing. I’ve also become a much better lead and made lots of new friends. Kat Arias and her team will break down the instruments involved in bachata and help you recognize them when dancing. They will explain the different types of bachata music and help you learn the footwork and body movement involved. I think with Kat’s training team the biggest positive is that you are purchasing Kat’s experience, her trained eye, her ear for music, and her expertise in teaching. I ask her anything, no matter how nuanced, and she always answers. The group of people who attend Kat’s class are friendly and go out to dancing after class sometimes so your bachata dancing network definitely grow. The knowledge I’ve gained from Kat and her team will be with me forever!

Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Silver Spring: what do users think?


Rachel Grossmann: The staff is amazingly friendly and patient and they have a lot of positive energy. Steve in particular is good at finding specific analogies that the students can relate to. I've improved my dancing so much in the short time I've been there. No other studio in the area that I have found offers nearly as many group classes and practice parties as Arthur Murray.

Yuan Cui: Arthur Murray Silver Spring is such a wonderful place to learn and have fun. Every instructor there is professional, encouraging, and kind. I studied here for 10 weeks over the summer, and I've become a much better dancer by participating in both private lessons, group lessons, and parties. This place is not only a dance studio, but also a heartwarming community, where you can receive and give so much love :) A special shout-out to Taylor and Ivanna for their patience with me in private lessons!

Jessica Oliver: I found a Groupon for Arthur Murray and it was an awesome deal! My (now) husband and I took a couple of private dance lessons a week out from our wedding. We worked with Sydney and she was amazing at teaching us a few steps for our first dance and making us feel a lot more comfortable about it. The classes were also a lot of fun and everyone who works there is extremely friendly and welcoming; I definitely plan on going back again some time! Thank you guys for your help!
Response: Thank you for the review! We love hearing that you had a great time!

Wendy Lukehart: I have been attending the Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Silver Spring for 3+ years and am having an amazing experience. The combination of lessons, group classes, and parties is a wonderful way to learn and practice new dance patterns and then enjoy the fruits of your labor. The teachers break information down into manageable bits and then encourage and lead as you grow in your skill. They couldn't be nicer, and the other students are friendly and kind as well. It's a great place to meet new people, learn a valuable skill, and enjoy the pleasure of moving to music. The studio immediately went virtual during the initial stages of the pandemic, so we didn't miss a beat, and they have taken all the necessary steps to safely re-open in careful stages. Join us--it's so much fun!
Response: Thank you for the glowing review Wendy! We love having you as part of the Arthur Murray Silver Spring Family!!

Megane Muluh: Sydney was amazing. I loved her energy, excitement, and patience. She definitely convinced me and my fiancé to take some more classes for our wedding.
Response: Thanks Megane! We are so happy you joined us!!

Carolyn Olsen: We love the staff and instructors at Arthur Murray, Silver Spring! Everyone is so friendly. The instructors are very skilled and do a great job of customizing our lessons to our abilities and interests. They also have helped us by making videos of parts of our lessons so that we can practice at home. Learning to dance at Arthur Murray, Silver Spring has been lots of fun. The pandemic has been a challenging time. The staff and instructors have done an amazing job of providing a safe environment...masks, hand sanitizing, socially distancing, limiting the number of people, and cleaning. For those who may prefer them, private and group Zoom lessons are available, too.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a glowing review!

Gerri Perry: I can't think of a better way to exercise, meet people and put joy into my life. Ever since I started at Arthur Murray, my experiences have been positive in every way. No only am I doing something for my health, but I am improving my skills in dancing. With each dance I learn, I gain confidence in myself and have more fun at the dance parties. The teachers are all so professional and friendly. I would recommend this studio to anyone who wants to learn to dance and do something good for their bodies at the same time.
Response: Thanks for the great review Gerri! We love having you as part of our Arthur Murray family!

Margaret Anderson: At my request, my husband bought me dance lessons as a Christmas present. We enjoyed a series of group and individual lessons from very professional and fun teachers near our home in Silver Spring. Arthur Murray Dance Studio instructors were fun and relatable that it was absolutely enjoyable. We picked up some good dance steps and like practicing dancing together at home.
Response: Thank you for your great review! It's our privilege to share our love of dancing!

Billy Patterson: If you want to learn to dance and meet new people Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring is where you want to go. I have been going there for several months and the experience continues to be delightful. The facilities are first-rate. The instructors are exceptional and caring and the whole environment is welcoming. The learning experience is comfortable in that you can go to weekly group classes and practice parties to augment your private lessons. There is also a weekly dance where you can put it all together and just have a good time. You can do as little or as much as you like. If you want a comfortable, fun place to learn to dance, join me at Arthur Murray Dance Center Silver Spring.

Sol Lopez: In addition to your private lesson, there are several group lessons offered each week. Group lessons are a great way to meet other dancers and practice in a comfortable and non-judgemental atmosphere. It's easy to form friendships with students of all levels and practice parties are an opportunity you have to put into practice all that you learn in the lessons. Arthur Murray gives you a solid foundation on which you can continue to improve your dance skills.

Classé Dance Company: what do users think?


Jakelline Baca: Had the privilege on taking a few classes outside of the studio with her in the past and I loved how warm and friendly she was when teaching. Loved how after the class she went up to people to talk a little more about dancing and her experience. It took me some time to see if I wanted to join a team and I’m so happy I’m able to join her team and keep on learning from her.

JuanJose “JJ” Cherrez: Very good place to start learning how to dance latin dance, or improve your dance skills. The team is wonderful and full dedicated. Linda the team leader really knows how to teach you the dance steps as dancing in clubs. They have a variarity of classes such as salsa,, bachata, and bachata sensual. In addition, Classe Dance Company owns an app, where provides all of their classes and schedules, events, store, and videos for the classes.

Angelika Johns: Linda is INCREDIBLE! If you're looking to learn sensual bachata, this is the place to go. Linda has trained with the creators of sensual bachata in Spain and knows the fundamentals from the roots of the dance. I had been taking classes with different instructors for a year and a half, but when Linda started training me, she introduced techniques and concepts that were absolute game changers. No one else had shared those kinds of techniques with me! Linda took my dancing to the next level - highly recommend Classe Dance Company.

A Scott: Linda’s class is amazing! I took the beginner’s bachata and salsa class and loved it! Linda is an excellent teacher, pays attention to each and everyone in her class and makes sure that everyone is learning. She makes it fun and easy to learn. I highly recommend her class. Thank you Linda!
Response: Thanks for your sweet words. Nothing that I do can work without your effort. Thanks again for letting me be a part of your improvement.

Amber Bullard: I just started taking classes with Linda and know I will learn so much from her. She always executes her moves with such precision and it's clear that she is very experienced and has excellent technique. Whether you're a beginner or you've taken lessons before, she will push you to the next level and improve your dancing. She always brings great energy to the class.
Response: Mi Amber I love how you dance, how hard you work and I am sure you will become a huge part of the Classe' team soon. In a few months you will be one of the best followers in DMV, keep it up as you are doing. You are so talented! thanks for trusting in me.

Jeremy Rodgers: Linda's couples bachata dance training classes at Classé are awesome! She is knowledgeable, fun and provides tremendous attention to detail to refine technique! A dancer at any experience level can benefit greatly from her courses.
Response: Oh wow! I feel sooo honored to be described like this from a great dancer like you. I feel grateful and I will keep working hard to give you my best.

samantha decker: I’ve always enjoyed my time with Classé. Linda’s teaching style is very effective, she works with you on techniques and makes sure that you come out to be your very best on the dance floor! I highly recommend this Dance company and if you are wanting to learn how to Dance bachata. It’s very much worth every penny.

Ron Rengel: The best place to learn Bachata Sensual. I started here when I didn’t know anything about dancing and now I’ve been with Classé for 4 years and I’ve been learning so much. Linda goes out of her way for all her students and she makes sure that they understand the fundamentals and technique. If you’re looking for place to start or enhance your dance abilities, look no further because Classé is the number 1 dance school in the DMV area!!!
Response: Mi Ronci and now look at you. You are one of the best social bachata dancers in whole DMV. Thanks for trusting is us and keep working with Classe'.

Jared Lester: Linda is an amazing and passionate instructor! She has pushed me hard to learn good dance fundamentals and has done wonders to improve my leading. Would definitely recommend classe dance company to anyone who is looking to step their dancing up a notch!
Response: Mi Jared you know how much I love dancing with you, working with you and definitely we've created a great friendship out of our dance classes and that is what I love from dancing, It lets me meet great people like you amigo. Keep dancing! you are great! Thanks for your words!

Samantha Woolley: Classé Dance Company is truly a home away from home where your teammates become family!! After 4 years of training with Linda Saenz, her creativity and determination to always work, train, and perform better than the last keeps all of her dancers from kids to couples focused on technique and improving their styling. It’s amazing to see how every dancer grows with Classé no matter the starting point. If you’re looking to improve your Sensual Bachata or Salsa technique and styling, Classé has a training team for you!!

Elegant Dancing: what do users think?


Tim Sansone: We worked with Malin for 5 months who choreographed, taught us, and fine tuned our perfect first dance (and a surprise second dance) for our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier. It took a lot of work, but Malin was very patient and informative the entire time. Me and my wife have no experience dancing, but you would never know that by watching our first dance thanks to the hard work of Malin. We are incredibly thankful to Elegant Dancing for helping make our first dance so beautiful and successful. My wife and I look forward to continuing with group lessons!
Response: Tim, congratulations on your wedding and successful 1st dance. Thank you for your glowing endorsement of Malin! She is definitely a gem of a teacher and person, and we're lucky to have her at Elegant Dancing. We hope your 1st dance experience has planted seeds for future dancing with us when time allows. Happy life and best to you both!

Shannon Davis: We began working with Michele several months before our wedding. She was patient, funny and is a great teacher. We enjoyed our time learning our first dance- it provided us an opportunity to spend quality time practicing and perfecting it. She set us up for success by teaching us moves that fit our ability rather than a routine, and it couldn't have turned out better on our wedding day. We had a great experience at Elegant Dancing with Michele!
Response: Shannon thank you for the very encouraging words for Michele. We are really happy you had a great experience at our studio and at your wedding. We hope that you will come back and keep dancing with us. Enjoy your day!

Liz A: I've been dancing as a fun hobby and a great workout - on and off - for over 30 years. I’ve travelled and moved around a lot and I must say that Elegant Dancing studio is by far the best dancing studios I've ever been to. The owners (Chris and Una) and the staff (Jim in particular) are attentive, friendly, and care very much about their business and their customers. They make you feel like you’re part of the dancing family and not just a paycheck. Prices are very reasonable and unlike franchised studios, Elegant Dancing, has seasoned, expert professionals with years of dancing experience as instructors. I’ve been taking regular private lessons with Lukas Klotzsche and with Javier Buentello who are fun-loving and amazing at what they do. They both listen well, teach with technique and style, and bring and abundance of energy and enthusiasm. I also regularly attend group classes taught by many of the other instructors. Basically, they’re all amazing instructors at this studio so you can’t really go wrong with anyone. Javier’s, Chris’, Edwin’s and Malin’s group classes have become weekly routines for me — as the most fun way for me to get a daily workout in whist learning new steps for dancing. It’s wonderful when am instructor takes pride in this beautiful and expressive form of art, and in his or her appearance! Prior to joining this studio, I had only ever danced the American smooth & rhythm and basically learned the Standard style with Lukas Klotzsche. I have completely fallen in love with the style and want to see how far I can take it. Lukas is easily one of the top instructors I've ever worked with. He’s technically flawless and his many years of competitive dancing shows not only in his professionalism and how he carries himself but also in his methodical approach to teaching.
Response: We can’t thank you enough for your glowing review, Liz. You have quickly become such an important, appreciated part of our little dance community – we are so happy to know that you are enjoying our teachers, classes, support staff and general atmosphere. Special thanks for sharing Elegant Dancing with your friends, who are now our friends too. Five stars for Liz!

Robert Ivancie: Lukas at Elegant Dancing was instrumental in making our wedding reception dreams of a formal wedding dance a reality. Lukas is not only professional and patient but he is an accomplished dancer that knows how to customize a dance routine to fit the couple no matter the experience level. His fun and exciting personality was exactly what we needed to build our confidence and master our dancing. We received numerous compliments for our wedding dance to include the event staff whom all wanted to know our instructor’s contact information! An endorsement well deserved Lukas and we will continue to be loyal customers of Elegant Dance to take our newly found skill to the next level.
Response: Thank you so much for your review. Lukas is a terrific guy and a dedicated instructor for wedding prep and all styles of social and competitive dancing. We're so glad to hear that your 1st dance was a resounding success!

Rie Matsuda: When I came to take my first dance lesson from Lukas Klotzsche at Elegant Dancing, I hadn’t danced ballroom for some years and I had never danced with him. I was so nervous. But Lukas stood out at the studio as a beautiful dancer— clearly knowledgeable of his craft. It turned out that Lukas was not only masterful in teaching dance but also personable and easy to connect with. He put me at ease right away, and the thrill of dancing came back to me at the first lesson. He has the perfect balance of being nurturing and challenging. Under his sensible guidance, there is a satisfaction of working hard and reaching further than I had expected from myself… all while having so much fun at every lesson and often laughing to tears. Dance has become more than “just dance” but a vehicle for deep self-exploration that extends well beyond the dance floor. And I feel fortunate to have somebody as good-hearted and mindful as Lukas as my guide in this journey.
Response: Rie, we really appreciate your thoughtful feedback and support for Lukas. You are an inspiration to many of the dancers in the studio and we are deeply encouraged that you have come back to your passion on the dance floor. Hearing your laughter in the studio is so infectious. 🤗🤗🤗. Elegant Dancing is a wonderful, happy place for all of us because of people like you!

Forester: I highly recommend Elegant Dancing. I am very impressed with their professionalism and friendliness. My 80-year-old mother-in-law takes private lessons with Lukas Klotzsche once a week. She stopped ballroom dancing 20 years ago and now is picking it right back up. Lukas is a wonderful instructor. He is patient, kind, accommodating, and caring. On top of that, he is an impeccable dresser. He is a gentleman, too. For instance, he escorts her to and from the dance floor if he ever needs to change the music. He makes her feel special every time she's there. It's as if she is at a ball with him. Lukas knows what teaching methods fit perfectly for her, and it shows. She dances so well and so smoothly. I can't be happier with the top quality dance instruction she is getting from Lukas. Thank you, Lukas!
Response: Forester, we are delighted to have your mother-in-law come back to dancing with our studio. Our teachers strive to make all of our students feel special & Lukas keeps that bar pretty high. Your endorsement of our studio means the world to us...Thank You ♥️!

Ashley Pyon: We did 5 wedding dance sessions (including the complimentary first class) with Justin! He is a great instructor, very precise with his words which makes it easy to understand, and obviously has a huge passion for dancing and teaching! We are excited to show our friends and family at the wedding our first dance and it is all thanks to Justin and Elegant Dancing!
Response: Ashley, your encouraging words for Justin and the studio are very rewarding. Justin's passion for dance is amazing and we hope you will add a couple pictures from your special day so we can celebrate with you (virtually). It is our sincere hope that you keep dancing!

Eric Yoo: My fiancée and I did not want to just move side to side at our upcoming wedding, so we decided to check out Elegant Dancing. We were very blessed to have the opportunity to learn from Justin. I am someone who lacks coordination and has no experience in dancing. Through Justin's patience and many different ways of teaching, I am feeling very confident now for our wedding dance next week. I love how open we could be to Justin. If there was a dance style that we did not like, he would accommodate us and teach us moves that matched more of our preferences. There were many times that we would have to reschedule, and Justin was super flexible with us. I highly recommend Justin as a dance instructor!
Response: Your positive comments mean the world to us, Eric! Justin had just a short amount of time to make learning your 1st dance a fun experience and a happy memory for the rest of your lives. He is a caring, creative teacher, dedicated to his full-time profession. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience (and you're not uncoordinated at all!)

Paul Grant: I started serious dance lessons in August of 2001, and it has been “a space odyssey.” I have taken lessons in nearly all studios in the Northern Virginia & some in Maryland area. I was extremely fortunate to find Silvia Beltran before there was an Elegant Dancing Studio. She has taught me skills many other instructors never did. She wants her students to continuously find the best and quickest ways to make progress, and her Elegant Dancing Studio home is always very welcoming. I know Silvia is the best Teacher for me! Our shared and written goals are to improve dancing skills and have much more fun. “Improving skills” will always be a work in progress. Unlike many of my past teachers who provide fundamental moves and patterns, Silvia provides advanced techniques and styling based upon her professional experience and knowledge that makes any pattern or routine, even bronze, progress toward gold quality performance. “More fun” is achieved at every lesson with Silvia and every studio-sponsored event. Every private lesson always includes laughter.
Response: Paul, we completely agree with you that learning should be fun and Silvia certainly brings baskets full of 🤗 to 🕺💃. Thank You for the photos too.

Kelly Manya: My husband and I took dance lessons from Mariel at Elegant Dancing. Neither of us knew how to dance at all and she not only made us feel confident but she made it so much fun! We look forward to returning soon for her to teach us to salsa! She is a fantastic teacher!
Response: Kelly, we are truly grateful to have Mariel on our staff and we are so pleased that you had a wonderful experience with her. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to see you you again in the studio soon. Keep Dancing 💃🕺!

Salsa With Silvia: what do users think?


Tara Jeanne: Went for a Saturday night Salsa Social. Great floors, nice open studio space. A little small. It was Salsa only on 1. A little bachata mixed in. A lot of beginners.
Response: Hi Tara, thank you for coming last night! Sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. We pride ourselves in being beginner friendly. They are all incredibly nice people and we help them grow into more advanced dancers. However, I can see how that may not be so much fun for an experienced dancer like yourself. We did have quite a few experienced teachers and dancers last night who also dance on 2. If you join us again I’m happy to introduce you. The DJ is also happy to cater to requests. Thank you for the review and enjoy your day! Silvia

Anna Cammayo: We went to their Date Night salsa lesson, and it was an absolute delight! Our instructor, Mario, was wonderful and really made us feel comfortable and excited even though we're not experienced dancers. We'll definitely be back!
Response: Thank you, Anna! So glad you enjoyed date night. We can't wait to have you back!

Jorge Guzmán: The place offer a variety of dance classes bachata, salsa and others. They offer a good price if you a get the unlimited package. They offer diferent levels of classes which is very helpful if you need to review steps or improve your skills. I am very satisfied with the classes.
Response: Jorge, thank you for the kind words! We are so happy you like the classes ☺️

Myriam K: Amazing beginner to intermediate dance studio. Great prices and even greater community. I made life long friends here.
Response: Thank you, Myriam! You are amazing!

Sarah Nakib: My family and I love this place. We love that my daughters 5 and 8 can be together for camps and we have done great birthday parties here. Silvia has been great to work with. Keep up the great work!!!
Response: Sarah, you are amazing! Thank you so much for the kind words. Anything we can do to make the girls happy, we are there for you. Thank you, again!

Madison Richter: Love the classes that they offer! Mario was a great instructor, he was amazing with helping create our first dance for our wedding. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and welcoming place to dance.
Response: Aaaaaawwww thank you so much! We are so happy we can help with your special day!

Jazmyn Snelson: I’ve been a part of the SWS 4 Kids program since the very beginning & have had the amazing opportunity to see it grow. It’s been such a rewarding & magical experience. Instructors are so invested in their classes & students, students not only learn but are challenged & make friends in class & at camp, and parents LOVE the end of semester recitals. Couldn’t imagine a better place for the whole family to visit, make friends, learn some dance moves, & genuinely have a great time! 10/10 would always recommend!!
Response: We love you 😘

Jean Poitevien: Excellent instructors and 2 locations makes it convenient
Response: Dear Jean, thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad you are loving your experience at the studio! Keep dancing!

Karina Perez: I took a plan with 4-week lessons. It was fun. I enjoyed it. During COVID times it’s kind of annoying to have the mask on but the class is not cardio heavy so it does not feel unbearable. It’s possible to do it with the mask on. Also, they check your temperature as you enter, there is hand sanitizer, you don’t have to touch anybody if you don’t feel confortable in dancing moves. There was barely any other classmates if that even, so it was really private lessons for me. I’ll plan for more classes in the fall.
Response: Thank you so much, Karina, for the kind words! So happy you enjoyed the classes! Yes, safety is our top priority! We hope to see you soon!

Greg A: Great date night with an awesome instructor,
Response: Thank you so much, Greg! We are so happy you enjoyed our date night class and we hope to see you again soon! Silvia

Hollywood Ballroom: what do users think?


Cheryl Maynard: 1st time there. My nephew was in town from California so I googled places to do west coast swing in the DC area. He was in heaven! Everyone was friendly and the dance lessons before the dance were easily followed. I believe that I may go back by myself as it was loads of fun!

Nicolas L.: Very clean. Good food and drink. Great staff, including dance instructors. Dancers are very friendly and nice. The music 🎶 is absolutely terrible: inconsistent, very un-inspiring, dull and un-memorable. Such a shame, because in this day, with the present technology that abounds, and the variety and rapidity of new music 🎶 coming out, there is no reason for the low quality of music that seems to plague the Hollywood Ballroom, for these many years. Maybe it's done pm purpose. I truly hope not. My two cents.

Toni Laich: Best place for dance on Friday nights! MadJam Productions! Beginner lessons every Friday.

Graciela Franco: Had my sister’s quinceañera there & it was amazing! Beautiful ballroom, great & friendly staff, & the place is so spacious & clean! 100% recommend

Dennis Tolliver: Nice large maple floor. Lots of parking. Nice people.

Alessandro Ghidini: Great location, spacious ballroom space, safe environment and interactions. My interest is international ballroom, but they have teachers also for American ballroom as well as se non-competitive dances, like salsa, merengue, bachata, night-club, hustle, etc. A great team of trainers, most with background in international and national competitions.

Warren Hall: Covid19 dancing. Good music. Great floor. Limited attendance so call to get on the list for Thursday afternoon.

The Dan Rogul: This is one of the largest (and best) ballroom dance spaces in Maryland and home to some of the largest (and friendliest) reoccurring dance parties in the USA. Their West Coast Swing on Friday nights, Mr. Mambo's dance night, and their ballroom dance parties are among the most attended social events in the country. As such, the skill levels range from brand new beginners to US Open and World Dance champions and everyone in between. Everyone always seems to have a great time, especially when they find people here who are just like them. Hollywood has many of the areas best instructors for different dance styles and dance legends from all over the world come here throughout the year to teach special workshops at reasonable prices to the local dance community. This place is a true Ballroom in size and as such, it is also available for wedding rentals. One of my best friends had her wedding here last year and the space, as well as the employees, were very accommodating. This place also has a very nice and recently renovated bar with good beers (IPAs and quality beers) and wines. It's definitely a good venue to experience for a memorable event.

Lucy J.: An enjoyable place to ballroom dance with good teachers, friendly staff and warm atmosphere.

CINDY EISELE: Friday night is a favorite with West Coast Swing dancers! Lesson included with admission so get there early. beginners learn free on the first Friday of each month! Hundreds of fun dancers.

THE SALSA ROOM: what do users think?


Yahanna B: F••k this place. I’ve NEVER been treated so BADLY in my life. Security took my jacket, car/house keys & phone from our reserved table; I begged them to return my things but the security men all treated me very aggressively! They ran away from me & kicked me out club, in the BLISTERING cold!! I couldn’t go home or call the police! I was mortified and crying for help, no one cared to help! After about an hour of walking aimlessly, to find help, and eventually get home (since all of my items were taken by security) a tall heavyset, dark skinned African American security guard drove up to me and dangled my items in front of me, as if I were some sort of criminal. All he had to do was look at my ID but they were treating me like I stole something. I can’t believe this happened to me!! I’ve never been treated so bad in my life.

Munky Luv: Upside: A LOT OF FUN! The person teaching the dances was upbeat, fun, and interacted with everyone! The dancing during and after was non-stop! Everyone was respectful (no one was pushy or handsy), the staff for the most part is attentive. The downside: The staff's uniforms are degrading and distasteful. The way the staff is forced to dressed is disgusting. Security is REALLY aggressive, I've never been yelled at before for waiting to enter a building like I had twice that night (once outside as I waited for the rest of my party to catch up, and again before going inside, waiting for the person with the ticket to give to the 'bouncer'). The drinks are WAY WAY WAY WAY overpriced! (for example: I ordered 2 shots of Tito's vodka - total $38! The price of a handle - A HANDLE of Tito's is $36!) Anyway - would I go again - absolutely! Will I drink - definitely not!

MO. B: I went to the Salsa Club on a Friday and it was a great experience. I got tickets off Eventbrite it was free entry before 11pm. It was a group of 4. When we got in the door and checked in we were offered a table for $40 which was a great price. Once we got in the set up was very airy and they had a very good set up of tables and couches. One thing I liked was at the tables they had electronic menus as well. Once we got our drinks the general manager Damien actually came by and offered us a bigger seating arrangement with no extra charge. Which we greatly appreciated and it was just great customer service after the night we had prior to coming there. The staff was friendly and the people there were great. Everyone just wanted to have a good time everyone was smiling it was just great to be out. The music was great as well. I went to the salsa club when you were located in arlington and I like this set up better. I will definitely be back! Thank you for a great experience.

Sharli Patel: We were treated really well by the bouncers at entry and exit. The instructor was amazing, she built upon each step gradually and it made sense compared to other classes I've taken. The music was super loud but my only negative was we think the alcohol in the bottles is actually cheap, low tier stuff. We both felt really sick the next day after only 2 drinks. They also didn't have limes and offered simple stuff. We'll definitely go again but we'll drink ahead l beforehand.

Niesha Anderson: Came here for the first time for the salsa class. My group and I got a table and I requested a cup of water from the sever. The server returned and said they don’t give cups a water. I was so confused because a place that serves alcohol should never deny a person water. I asked to speak with the manager John and he said if I don’t like it I can leave. I have never in my life experienced that type of treatment. I do not recommend this place. They need management that has more customer service skills.

Cheli: Watch your tabs! I’ve been charged for drinks and tips that I did not authorize. My friends and I are often ignored by the women bartenders who would rather serve men first. Annoying. Getting a table here is a joke too. My party and I never got through even half our bottle because our server was never there! It got to a point that we had to split up and look for her, and then also call the manager. Arrogant people, terrible customer service, and ridiculously overpriced. Go somewhere else.

Baby Moretta Jackson: The place used to be a classy place grown and sexy folks could go have a nice dance. Last night I was disgusted when my waitress walked up to us in a thong body suit and no pants. PUT SOME PANTS ON! I’m never going back to this sleazy trashy whole again.

Jorge Del Carpio Arispe: This place is wack. Won’t give water without paying $6. My friend said a woman in the bathroom wouldn’t give her soap unless she paid her a tip. Are you kidding me? Soap? In a pandemic? What a stain on northern VA this place is. Also, if we came with a partner, let us learn the class with our partner.

Yari: I loved it. Went with my husband (date night) was so much fun. Ladys free till 11. Good security. Learning classes (for fun) on the dance floor with instructor around 9ish was bachata night last night. Everyone was nice. Drinks were a little high (2 drinks for 25$) ....but overall just loved it.... 👍😊

ibattlemike: I paid for reservations. Yet I have to wait in a line that isn't moving...as if we needed to feel special for eventually being allowed in. The assistant manager fixed a small issue we had at first with our reservation. 5 stars overall due to great environment inside.

Maribel Gutierrez: I have taken dance classes at different studios for years now. However, no one compares to Cecilia’s professionalism and knowledge. Cecilia is not only an excellent dancer but an amazing instructor who inspires you and brings out the BEST of you. You can truly see Cecilia”s passion is teaching!! I would definitely recommend her!

Jennifer Quinonez: One of the best instructors around the DMV area. Over 20 yrs experience. Very few instructors today teach solid basics and help them learn musicality & Rhythm.

Her teaching ensures everyone learns to dance w feeling not just copy like a robot. Her classes are guaranteed to help get in shape and make new friends!

S Bailey: I’ve always wanted to learn Latin dancing. I am so grateful to have found Cecilia. She is the absolute best! The pace and progressive form of teaching helps you learn quickly.

Lucille Sec: Never received a refund even when the festival was canceled. Have reached out to them multiple times. No response. I already lost money on a plane ticket to DC, so the least they could do is refund me my ticket to the festival, but they have not.
